This is very pretty and practical. It doesn't slip around on the floor. It lays flat--so there is no tripping on it or curled edges (I don't bump my toes to the edges). It is very smoothe and soft. As a result, the litter won't trap the way it would if the mat had grooves, but I like this design better. It's easy to sweep up as well as vacuum. It's large enough that the litter doesn't scatter. I also really like that it's washable.
It's bigger than I thought it would be so it doesn't fit in the space where I have the litter box but I laid it on my floor in front of the TV and my cat loves it. Very nice mat!!
